Marginalia: Grownup Fiction with Child Protagonists

storyacious marginaliaI read Emma Donoghue’s Room entirely over a weekend. For a story with just 2 main characters who spend most of the the duration in a 12×12 locked room with only 1 visitor, it is quite the drama-filled page-turner and covers an almost-full gamut of human experience. So, I am really liking this list of other similar-themed and plotted novels, none of which I have read. Love discovering new books, don’t you?
